The prosecution case against El Chapo took 10 weeks. Regardless of if you'd want to, would you be able to serve 6 months on a jury, or would job, family obligations, or other reasons prevent you from being able to?

That would be awful! I would lose money.

My uncle who I was very close with was murdered so they’re never going to let me on a jury for a criminal trial anyway. Civil suit maybe, but with something like this they always about any violent crime incidents in your past.

But yeah... even if I could I’m self employed so it would destroy my savings to stop working.

Yes, but my return to work would be horrific with a Everest of paperwork. I would never shirk my civic duty like that wily @chickencookie! 😜

It is a very good question, though.

Even if i could I wouldn’t want to be on the jury for him due to fear for my life

Agreed, but I wasn't referring to just that case, I meant any hypothetical case that could last for 6 months.

I could easily do it but in his case I would feel like dead man walking (me) after his sentence.

Not necessarily that case, I meant any trial that could go for 6 months.

I’m not the bread winner, daughter is grown and as long as my illnesses weren’t acting up, I could.

But it would be hard to guarantee an illness wouldn't act up for 6 months. I guess that's why they have alternates.

Good! I’m out then πŸ˜ƒ. I got news for you. They called me last year to serve for regular jury duty. Next time I’m called I’m getting a doctor’s note. I heard it’s harder to get out of it. Last time my sciatica was really bad but I didn’t try to get out of it. Lucky I didn’t postpone because Christie shut govt down and my turn was overπŸ’ƒπŸ»

Yes, but it would be a burden to others.

No. I'm my family's sole means of support, and I make six figures. That'd be too much to recover from.
